2013 RDX AWD - Great Crossover!
By blackdogrdx on


2013 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


This 2nd Gen RDX is awesome! The room of a crossover/wagon, AWD, 25ish MPG overall, excellent driver comfort, very roomy rear seat, high quality base audio, standard rear view camera, reliability of Honda/Acura, smooth 6 speed auto transmission, and a strong and quiet V-6.
It is definitely a must-test-drive if you are in the small to mid size SUV market and willing to spend $35-40k. It matches up well against the X3, Q5, even Touraeg.
A word of warning - do not test drive if it is out of your price range. If you are considering a CR-V or Rav 4 and don't want to add $10-15k, don't make yourself miserable.

Best Features

Very roomy and supportive for both the driver/passanger and the rear seat considering the overall size. Great MPG for a V-6 with smooth acceleration. The center stack has an efficient layout considering the amount of features. Standard Rear View Camera makes the visibility a non-issue.

Worst Features

Add rear-seat vents.

Would agree. The new RDX is a huge improvement over last years small SUV. The only issue that I have is the price. I believe that Acura over-priced the new version. I bought my 2009 sport MDX for $40K a few years ago and now the smaller Acura is the same price. The price shock will limit more sales for Acura.
